    Prediction: With the likes of Crosby, Malkin, Bergeron, Kopitar, Thornton, Toews, Backstrom, Getzlaf at or past their prime. Who will be the top 10 centres in the NHL in 5 years time?

    McDavid, Mackinnon, Matthews, J. Hughes, E. Pettersson, Barkov, Eichel, Scheifele, Monahan, Draisaitl, Barzal, B. Point, N. Hischier, N. Patrick, P. Dupois, J. kotkaniemi, etc.

    Who are your top 10 centers in 5 years?

    I haven't seen enough of the non prospects /nhl rookies to comfortably rank them.

    Joe Thornton was 4th in scoring as a 36 year old so I wouldn't be shocked to see Crosby and/or Malkin still in the top 10 by then.

    Aho is a C now, he should be in everyone's top 10.

    I honestly believe Sid will still be top-5C in five years.

    Really tough to rank the guys who haven’t been drafted. I’m guessing of draft pick after Hughes could be in the mix. I couldn’t decide between Matthews and Barkov as they both have different strengths and are great centers.

    Kuznetsov deserves a mention. He is still only 26.

    Crosby is going to be 36 in 5 years, wouldn't be surprised if he's still in the top 10 by that point tbh.

    People don't think a guy like Crosby can still be a Top 10 center in 5 years time? Were guys like Sakic, Yzerman, Sundin, Thornton, etc. no longer Top 10 centers when they were 35/36 years old?
